Claremont 4 Carers campaign raises over £4,000
Published on 19/05/20
Claremont Fan Court School’s three-week fundraising campaign ‘Claremont 4 Carers’ was launched at the end of April in support of the Princess Alice Hospice. Our school community came together during the COVID-19 lockdown to support a wonderful team who, as key workers, continued to provide vital compassionate care for patients throughout the pandemic.
The Claremont 4 Carers campaign began in the Senior School, inviting pupils to complete a set of ten sponsored activities from home (in line with social distancing measures) which when successfully completed would amount to a £20 donation to the hospice. Activities included a 30 minute run/cycle, helping with household chores, checking in on someone who may be feeling lonely and writing a thank you letter to the NHS or a key worker.
In just one week, the Senior School hit their initial £1,000 target, and after two weeks the total had more than tripled. It was then over to our Pre-Prep and Nursery children who participated in a Great Claremont Fancy Dress Friday charity day on Friday 15 May, completing their sponsored tasks in full fancy dress! Their fundraising efforts brought the total up to more than £4,000 – a wonderful achievement!
The response has been fantastic and we congratulate every pupil who got involved to successfully complete their sponsored activities from home whilst the school was closed. Equally, a huge thank you to our school community who came together to support this fantastic cause and donated towards our Claremont 4 Carers campaign so very generously. It has been a great pleasure to support a local charity in this way.
It's not too late to donate! Our JustGiving page remains open for any further donations should you wish to support the campaign: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/cfc-4-carers
